Preparing health professions students to be collaborative practice ready

High quality and safe healthcare is best delivered by a team that works in collaboration with the person receiving care and with each other.

Interprofessional collaborative healthcare is of increasing importance for effective and appropriate responses to social and health inequities, the rising  prevalence of chronic health conditions and global pandemics.

At the University of Melbourne our new team of Interprofessional Education and Practice academics and clinicians are working together to support the development of our health professions students to be ‘collaborative practice ready’ through 'interprofessional education'.
